Alex Lavroff’s stylist artistic history dates back to his youth in exotic Egypt legendary for its archival past. Alexander engrossed himself in the extraordinariness of his environment until he was twelve years of age and at this time he was afforded the opportunity to take life classes with an Italian Master.
The transition of his Russian family migrating to Australia in the mid-fifties only benefited this ardent young artist. At this time his father seeing his son’s potential artistic talent decided without hesitation enormously encouraged Alexander to develop an astuteness regarding the enjoyment of drawing. With this, Alexander, himself, became a perceptive and razor like artist directly obtaining pleasure for both himself and others who would eventually take this man seriously with his unique form of passionate art forms and illustrations.
Alex’s formal art education was born from the famous Sydney Technical Art Collage at Darlinghurst; and later at the Royal Art Society at North Sydney where he would obtain merit with his portraitures; and then training with Graham Inson from the Max Meldrum School in tonal impressionism.
Be that as it may, his great love and most of his career stems from those intoxicating days as an acknowledged Illustrator for the advertising industry specialising in airbrush photo real illustrations.
